There's only one more fish fry Friday left this year, and we'll be using it to check out the readers' pick. Last week you voted on four very different celebrations; there were strong write-in candidates as well. So, where should we meet you this Friday?

WINNER: St. Ferdinand Catholic Church (1765 Charbonier Road, Florissant; 314-837-3165). St. Ferdinand actually operates its fish fry year round and has been going strong for 61 years. It started out as a parish fundraiser and grew into a weekly event with dozens of volunteers. As the church says, "it is worth the drive and worth the wait."

Here's the full report:

St. Ferdinand Catholic Church (1765 Charbonier Road, Florissant; 314-837-3165): 31.34 percent St. Cecilia Parish Church (5418 Louisiana Avenue; 314-351-1318): 26.27 percent St. James the Greater (1360 Tamm Avenue; 314-647-0167): 6.57 percent First Unitarian Church (5007 Waterman Blvd; 314-361-0595): 0.3 percent Other: 35.52 percent

Be sure to hit up St. Ferdinand this Friday from 2:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. this Friday -- you can see the full menu here.
